Roulette Rules

The game of European Roulette is played by spinning a small ball on a round wheel with thirty-seven numbered slots. When the wheel stops, the ball comes to rest in one of these slots. The object of European Roulette is to correctly predict the slot in which the ball will land. By predicting the right number, you earn a payoff on your bet. The size of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed.

How To Play
To place a bet in European Roulette, place your chips on the table. Depending on where you choose to place your chips, you can cover (bet on) anywhere from one to eighteen numbers with a single bet.

You can place eight different kinds of bets on the European Roulette table. Each type of bet covers a certain range of numbers, and each type has its own payoff rate. The short lines of three numbers each are called rows on the board, while the longer lines, each holding twelve, are called columns. The first five types of bets are all made on the numbered space or on the lines between them and are called inside bets, while the last three types are made on the special boxes below and to the right of the board and are called outside bets. These bets are tabulated below

Bet Type Explanation
STRAIGHT UP
Place your chips directly on any single number (including zero)
SPLIT BET
Place your chips on the line between any two numbers
STREET BET
Place your chips at the end of any row of numbers. A street bet covers three numbers
CORNER BET
Place your chips at the corner where four numbers meet. All four numbers are covered
LINE BET
Place your chips at the end of two rows at the intersection between them. A line bet covers all the numbers in either row, for a total of six
COLUMN BET
Placing a chip in one of the boxes at the end of the columns covers all the numbers in that column, a total of twelve. (The zero is not covered by any of the columns)

DOZEN BET
Placing a chip in the box marked 12 covers numbers 1 to 12, 12 covers numbers 13 to 24, 12 covers numbers 25 to 36
RED/BLACK , EVEN/ODD, LOW/HIGH
A chip placed in one of the six boxes at the bottom of the board covers the half of the board described in that box. (The zero is not covered by any of these boxes.) Each box covers eighteen numbers. Low covers numbers 1 to 18. High covers numbers 19 to 36

Once a spin is complete, the winning number will be noted on the table with a marker.

Zero Rule
Wagers on red, black, even, odd, low, and high shall be lost if the roulette ball comes to rest in the compartment marked zero (0)
